A search continues for a man who left Fort William train station to cycle to his home in Fife four weeks ago.

The last confirmed sighting of Tony Parsons, 63, was on Friday, September 29, when he left the Bridge of Orchy Hotel around 11.30am.

He then headed south towards Tyndrum on the A82.

Mr Parsons arrived at Fort William station around 4.10pm on the same day then set off to cycle back to Tillicoultry, again along the A82.

He passed through Glencoe village shortly after 6pm.

Since he was reported missing, search and rescue officers have been deployed along with police dogs and mountain rescue teams to try and trace him.

Mr Parsons is described as being 5ft 9in tall, of stocky build with short greying hair, a moustache and he usually wears glasses. He also has tattoos –  one of an anchor on his right upper arm and an eagle on his left arm.

He was last seen wearing a distinctive red waterproof jacket, a blue long-sleeved cycling top, a high-visibility vest, fingerless gloves, beige combat trousers and walking boots.

Mr Parsons was also wearing a silver and grey cycling helmet, carrying a silver and blue rucksack and riding a yellow-framed bike with black handlebars.
